Mauro Ranallo will be sticking around WWE.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider reports that Mauro Ranallo and WWE have come to terms on a new deal that will see Mauro stick around as the lead announcer in NXT. The deal was reportedly agreed to "a month or so back." Terms and length of the deal were not reported.
According to the report, Ranallo will continue to do commentary work for other combat sports outside of WWE. Mauro has done work for Showtime Boxing and Bellator MMA during his time in WWE.
Ranallo signed with WWE in December 2015 and became the lead voice of SmackDown. He remained with the blue brand until April 2017 when he and WWE agreed to "mutually part ways." However, in June 2017, he was introduced as the lead commentator for the NXT brand. He has been the Voice of NXT ever since.
In other NXT commentary news, at last week's television tapings, a new voice was added to the NXT booth. You can find out which WWE Hall of Famer debuted as the new announcer for NXT by clicking here.
